  Welcome to our lab website!  
  Class Announcements will be located here!
Please check back often, especially if you have missed a lab.
  • Please read Lab 3a (link below) before lab this week. It will better prepare you in understanding both the material and flow of the experimental lab.  A paper copy of this lab will be provided to you this week as well.
  • On Oct. 4 & 5 we began a 3-week experimental lab If you were unable to attend lab this past week please read Pre-Lab 3 (link below -not-in-manual-) and complete the assignments on pages 12 and 13 only. The assignments are due next week in lab.
  • Most of the links you can see are not active yet.  This is not a bug, but on purpose.
  • This year the weather and climate labs will be in a state of experimentation.  We are actively trying to improve our labs by introducing new and innovative ways to help you learn the important concepts of meteorology.  Please understand that some things may differ from your lab manual and that we will often be working in a more freestyle manner while employing innovative and analytical solutions to real world problems.  It's going to be a bumpy ride at times, but I think it will be worth the trip!
  • Please be sure to purchase your own personal copy of the Weather and Climate Lab Manual in the Salem State Bookstore
  • Despite the rumors and misinformation that you may hear, Weather and Climate Lab does meet during the first week!  Please attend or you will be marked as absent.
